Why did you change?
Why did you bend and break?
When the water turned to wine, did it feel the same?
Why did you change?
Why did you bend and break?
When the water turned to wine, it never feels the same

You suck the bottle dry
Touch fingers to the night
Feels like I've been here before
Now there's an empty hole where you were long ago
But things are different when you're young

Why did you change?
Why did you bend and break?
When the water turned to wine, did it feel the same?
Why did you change?
Why did you bend and break?
When the water turned to wine, it never

The nights are getting cold
Those faces growing old
And there is nothing you can do
So sing your sad excuses
You've got the scars to prove it
And I'm sure they'll sing along

Why did you change?
Why did you bend and break?
When the water turned to wine, did it feel the same?
Why did you change? (Why did you change)
Why did you bend and break?
When the water turned to wine, it never feels the same

It never feels the same
It never feels the same

Why did you change?
Why did you bend and break?
When the water turned to wine, did it feel the same?
Why did you change? (Why did you change)
Why did you bend and break?
When the water turned to wine, it never
When the water turned to wine, it never feels the same

    A person. Long ago, he had a friend, he looked up to. He and his other best friend thought the other friend was so amazing, and they had so much fun together. But then, both the friends of the person changed, to go to a darker side, and the person is left there. Alone.

    The artist asks why the mystery person changed, why they turned to drinking and as the years passed, did they even notice that they were changing, did it even matter?

    There's one person, who has a friend who he looks up to, but then he changes, in a dark way. The person is left there, wondering what happened, why did he change.

    It does seem like it's about the pain of losing someone close. Maybe not physically, but it's like they don't know them anymore. "why did you change".

    Or it could be possible that the person they're singing about moved on and left them behind, making the singer wonder why they had to be the strong one and move on while they were left there.

    It could be a lot of things.
